@emaas301:  David’s bridal has many great options for plus sized brides. Mori Lee has a line for plus sized brides, as well. According to their website, there are stores in MN that carry the bridal collections. You could also try Alfred Angelo. They have beautiful dresses for plus sized brides. There are also seem to be several stores in MN that carry the bridal line. 

I hope this helps.

Luxe bridal in Minneapolis.  They specialize in plus size and they are amazing.  Not once did I feel large, the consultants are great, hands down a fantastic experience.  There is also another plus size bridal store in the northern suburbs, the prices were a bit cheaper there, but the service and gowns were not as good.

Edit: The second shop is Glass Slipper Bridal Salon in Anoka.  Both shops only carry plus size sample dresses, you will be able to fit in them and you will be beautiful!

I just realized that, with the exception of David’s Bridal, I provided you with bridal collections and their availability in your state rather than actual stores. Sorry about that. Maybe you’ll be able to use the info for inspiration, if nothing else.

The Glass Slipper in Anoka, MN http://glassslipperbridalsalon.com/ They carry plus size samples! That means you don’t have to worry about not being able to try on dresses.

The wedding shoppe in St. Paul does have some larger sample sizes, though you will be sent to a different building than their normal shop. I saw some fairly large sample sizes when I was there. If you do go there I would go in with a good idea of what you are looking for because my consultant was not very helpful at all.

Ah I had an absolutely horrible experience at The Wedding Shoppe in St Paul. Do not go there. Where are you located in MN?

I went to Rush’s Bridal on Nicollet Mall  http://www.Rushs.com

They had a pretty good selection of dresses that fit me and they were great.  I had a wonderful experience there and they also have a big selection of bridesmaid dresses.

I second Luxe. They were amazing. They have a nice selection and they take great care of you. I never felt big there.

Oh It’s not a big deal. Just wouldn’t recommend or support a business that has as bad of service as they did. I am surprised people go to The Wedding Shoppe at all.
